Fantastic lawyer
Counselor worked with me on a traffic infraction. Reduced a speeding infraction to "Failure to obey traffic sign", reducing my demerit points by half. Knowledgeable, responsive, and a great communicator.

Finally at Peace
Attorney Chidinma Harley is an exceptional trial attorney and I highly recommend her expert service to anyone needing legal counsel. I hired her because of her experience and expertise as mentioned in her profile, her mission and vision statement as identified in her advertisement. However, it became definitively clear during my court proceedings that I made the right choice because she had my best interest at heart and delivered. I am extremely please and totally happy I choose her as my trial attorney.

Bad situation got fixed
Nothing more to say, I had 28 miles above limit and got away with it with 3 points instead of 6 and reduced fine. Another one with 20 above limit and got no points just a fine. Thank you Chidinma.

Exceeded my expectations!
Ms. Harley is the kind of professional anyone would want to put their trust in any given day. She intently listened to me as her client and offered the best advice she can. There was no pressure from her whatsoever and always respectful of my plight. I would recommed her to anyone I know!

Well Worth It.
I would recommend Chidinma over all, she papered myself ahead of time, worked hard and diligently to deliver everything I wanted, and she was clear and kept me informed of everything leading up to my court date. Thank you

Chidinma Harley -- Amazing communicator, eloquent writer and definitely reads between the lines
I hired Ms. Harley in late 2014 for some assistance with my controlling, non-communicative ex wife. She met with me one time, and drafted multiple letters that completely and wholly encompassed my feelings, desires for an outcome and fought hard for me. More importantly she tempered her responses with full anticipation of escalation further down the road and setting us up for success. It was refreshing, honest, and what I needed....someone on my side who wasn't playing games. I will hire her full time when the time comes, and it's coming soon.
